Maxi Dress Season!

With the arrival of the warm weather it is also the arrival of  maxi dress season! Maxi dresses are easy to wear and are perfect for hot summer days. Today, i’m sharing with you one of my favorite maxi dresses. I got this dress at the end of summer last year and fell in love with it! This is also the month of Ramadan, a religious month of fasting for Muslims and this dress is perfect for any ladies iftar’s you may be attending because of the long sleeves and length – you’ll be trendy and modest 😉

Everyone knows I love neutral colors so I went for the grey, but the floral print adds some color and that spring vibe. I wore this to a recent bridal shower and to dress it up I  paired it with nude heels and a blush clutch.

A Little Bit of Gray For A Gray Kind of Day

Hi all,

April is upon us which means – hello April showers! As many aren’t, i’m not a huge fan of a rainy day, however, I strategize by putting on a outfit I like so that I don’t feel the negativity.

Today’s outfit is simple, I grabbed a gray sweater and paired it with a white tank underneath. This created a polished look that is perfect for the office! My work bag went perfectly with this because it added some color to the whole look.

Valentine’s Day to Night Outfit

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! 

I’m one of those people who love Valentine’s Day whether I am celebrating it with someone or not. I love the flowers, chocolates and stuffed animals in the tradional reds and pinks!

Today, I wanted share with you my Valentine’s Day themed outfit that is perfect for going from day to night!

This outfit is very simple. I took one of the few red shirts I own and paired it with a pair of distressed jeans and heels for a casual but put together day time look.

For the evening look, I changed from the jeans into this black lace pencil skirt. I LOVE this skirt because it’s black so it goes with everything and the lace adds some detail and has a feminine touch to it!

Dressing Up The Over Sized Sweater!

Hi All!

Winter has officially struck upstate NY. If you have ever lived near the Rochester/Buffalo area, you know that winter here is no joke. I’m talking about feets of snow, terrible driving conditions – if you’re car doesn’t skid once while driving to work in the morning, you’re not really experiencing an upstate winter. The worst part is that this weather leads to intense laziness, i’m sure none of us need more of that. For that reason, the only way to get through this is by wearing comfy sweaters.

One of the only reasons that I look forward to this time of year – the over sized, warm sweaters! Unfortunately, we can’t wear them all season around but today I am sharing a way to dress up your sweater so that you can pull it off on a causal work day if you need to (and by need, I mean anytime it’s socially acceptable 😛 )

The way I dressed this over sized sweater, was by simply adding heels and a cute bag. This is one of the easiest ways to dress up anything at all!

Fall Wrap 4-Ways!


Hi all,

Unfortunately, Fall is beginning to wind down but before it officially does I wanted to share with you four ways to wear the fall staple that so many of us have in our closets this season – a wrap.

This wrap is a beautiful mustard color and matches the color of the gorgeous fall leaves! I wore this with a black tshirt and leggings for that comfy feel.

1. The first way to wear this is the simplest way, like a shawl over the shoulders.


2. The second way is one of my favorites, with a belt. This is more flattering and looks more put together instead of the casual vibe the other three ways are.


3. This third look is more relaxed, with one side across the shoulder. I love wearing it this way on chilly days!


4. This final way create the affect of a wrap shirt. All you have to do is tuck in the sides of the shawl in your jeans and you’re good to go!


Comment below and let me know what you think of these simple ways to change up the look of your wrap!

Paris is Always a Good Idea…

Hi all,

Hope you’re having a wonderful week! Today, I’ve collaborated with eShakti to bring you a review of one of their cutest dresses! If you visit their website, they have SO many options of dresses, tops, jeans, skirts and the best part is that you can customize your selection. After you select a dress, you can pick the sleeve length, neckline style, and length. I love this because even though others can buy these dresses too, because of the customization feature, yours will be truly unique!

The dress I picked out is the Landscape Print Belted Mixed Media dress which retails for $69.95.


I love this because the print at the bottom is beautiful and hard to find anywhere else! Also, it’s Paris! and we all know that Paris is always a good idea 😉

I chose to increase the length of this dress so it’s a maxi. I accessorized it with a mint green belt for some fun color (and because I didn’t love the belt that it came with), and added a statement necklace.

Here is the dress with the belt it comes with.

My experience with eShakti was very smooth. The dress turned out to be exactly how I wanted it, and it shipped within a week as well! The price of their items seem fair to me  because every piece has to be customized and their designs are truly unique. They also have a good clearance section with lower prices and have sales quite often!

For the Love of Autumn…

Hi all,

I’m going to say the one thing that almost every fashion obsessed girl says this season – Autumn is my favorite! Words can not describe how much in love with this season I am. The comfy sweaters, the hot lattes in the chilly mornings, the crunch sound you hear when you step on a pile of leaves and the beautiful color the world turns as the leaves change – could anything be more beautiful?

 

Fall is also my favorite season to dress for. The deeper colors, sweaters, boots and hats, I love it all! Today, i’m sharing with you an outfit of the day that just screams Autumn to me!

I wore a light weight sweater (perfect for that in between weather) in a taupe color, and then added a burgundy knit scarf to that. This is my favorite scarf for fall and winter because the color is so beautiful and it keeps you warm! It is finally chilly enough to pull out my brown boots, and then I added the hat as a fun extra to the outfit! I love this outfit because all the colors together look like the beautiful colors that the leaves are turning.
